Our motorcycle tours in Mongolia are not suitable for beginners and the more experienced you are at off-road riding, the better you will enjoy the trip. Get in as much practice as you can before the tour and if necessary take some lessons. Understand that this is NOT A RACE or COMPETITION. See more information about safety issues here: TERMS & CONDITIONS (SECTION 12). To ensure the smooth running of our motorcycle tours everyone is obliged to follow these instructions and to abide by our tour leader.
- Always ride behind the Lead Rider
- If you get lost, stop and wait for us to find you.
- Do not ride under the influence of alcohol.
- Treat other riders with respect.
- Follow the instructions of the Tour Leader.
- Do not stray from the trail.
- Be alert for animals and local drivers.
- Don't let anyone else ride your bike.
The road conditions are unpredictable. Sometimes it looks perfectly safe, flat and easy, but suddenly you come to a place where the rain has worn away the road into deep grooves which are treacherous for motorcycles. Also, beware of other road users. We drive on the right hand side, so always keep to the right when facing oncoming vehicles. Although drinking and driving is banned, it is not unusual in the countryside to come upon local drivers who are drunk and drive erratically, so be aware that other drivers might not do what you expect. Local people will all be fascinated to see us and want to know what we're doing and where we're going. Domestic animals, on the other hand, will not be impressed that they have to share the road with you and they might suddenly walk or jump. However, they are unlikely to walk or jump backwards, so it's usually safer to pass their rear end rather than their head.
